Why Do We Make All of Our Dance Boards With Sustainable Wood?

First, you may be wondering: What is "sustainable wood"? When we speak about the wood we use to create our dance boards being sustainable, we are referring to the way in which the wood is sourced.

You may have seen us post on social media about how the wood we use for our dance boards is 100% FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified.

I am more the kind of person to focus on one or a few words for the year (i.e., in the past, one of my words was “community”), and I feel that this really helps to guide my focus on what experiences I create for myself, what I say “yes” to, and what I say “no” to. So far, I haven’t yet picked my words or specific intentions for the year, but I am focusing on the ideas of moving, creating, and getting out into nature more. Additionally, I’m...

How to Use Dance Daze Dance Boards

While there are so many ways to use Dance Daze Dance Boards, our co-founder Saumirah McWoodson loves using them most for doing outdoor ballet barre classes and for learning tap dance combinations from YouTube! Throughout 2020 and 2021, Saumirah says that using her Dance Daze Dance Boards helped her to establish consistent practice routines, improve her ballet technique, and to develop her own creative practice.

Dance Daze Dance Boards can be used for practicing balancing,...

The Story Behind the Dance Daze Dance Boards Brand

Every brand has a story, right? Following is a bit of the story of Dance Daze Dance Boards. After the pandemic hit, and after we knew that it was going to last a little longer than we may have originally believed, Dance Daze Dance Boards Co-founder Saumirah McWoodson had gotten into the habit of creating free digital content for kids every week.

Additionally, Saumirah even started a fully virtual dance program, called Dance Daze Online for which she eventually recorded nearly 100 dance classes for children ages 2 to 10 between April...
